Good, but requires strategy

The game is good, but you want to be careful before you buy. The gameplay works well, it looks good, and it's fun. The game requires strategy and patience, and if you don't have those you probably shouldn't buy, you're eventually going to want to declare war on someone, but it takes time to get your treasury wealthy enough so you don't go bankrupt in a prolonged conflict, and when you capture a reigon, it will sometimes require you to put down rebellions and such. Battles are incredibly difficult at first, but they become very fun once you're used to them. Overall really good, but the amount of patience and strategy required is great, so make sure that's what you want before you buy.

Serious Gamers Need Apply

Personal favorite in the TW Series, and in my top 5 ever with 30 years of gaming. Had this on PC before upgrading to a Mac. Runs even smoother now than it did on the PC! This is a must have title for any serious strategy gamer. Not for the meek however as the strategic elements and battle mechanics create a fairly steep learning curve. That aside, it’s a beautiful game with heaps of replay value.

A two-button mouse should be listed as a requirement. It’s virtually unplayable without one.

for those who have trouble with the right click button

in order to use the right click on macbook go to settings then trackpad then point and click and turn on the secondary click and adjust whether u want to double click, click on right corner or click on left corner and then launch the game. this will give you the right click ability when u play the game. this will give control. glad to help those with complaints about this problem. i am a great fan of this game and highly recommend this to others.
